LaHug’s Captains 2019 – Round 10

0

Last round was a tricky one with plenty of outs making life difficult for coaches. Let’s hope everyone’s back this week because the numbers say there could be some huge scores!

VC Options – Round 10

Jake Lloyd

Last 3: 141, 83, 101 (108 avg)

Last 3 against Collingwood: 114, 99, 128 (114 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 83, 107, 109 (100 avg)

Big score from Lloyd last week and he may have regained his form. Collingwood’s a tough match up but the numbers look pretty good. Prediction – 120

Brodie Grundy

Last 3: 144, 141, 108 (131 avg)

Last 3 against Sydney: 167, 105, 89 (120 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 167, 105, 89 (120 avg)

MCG Grundy delivered again but he’s no slouch elsewhere. A big 167 last year makes me pretty confident in giving him the VC this week. Prediction – 140

Adam Treloar

Last 3: 113, 109, 103 (108 avg)

Last 3 against Sydney: 108, 125, 114 (116 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 108, 125, 78 (104 avg)

Treloar keeps chugging along and the numbers say he’ll be good this week but maybe not the numbers we need for a VC. Prediction – 115

Jack Macrae

Last 3: 124, 135, 107 (122 avg)

Last 3 against North: 153, 122, 107 (127 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 107, 97, 139 (114 avg)

Macrae scored big against the Roos last year and his form is looking good again right now. Good option if you don’t have Grundy or want to be a bit different. Prediction – 130

Captain Options – Round 10

Matt Crouch

Last 3: 54, 97, 104 (85 avg)

Last 3 against West Coast: 126, 146, 120 (131 avg)

Last 3 at AO: 54, 97, 108 (86 avg)

Starting the Cs here for those using Bines for the loophole but there’s every chance donuts elsewhere mean the rest of the Saturday guys are VC eligible too! I probably wouldn’t gamble on Crouch if he plays after his injury but his numbers against the Eagles are so good. Prediction – 120

Elliot Yeo

Last 3: 136, 115, 132 (128 avg)

Last 3 against Adelaide: 94, 77, 29 (67 avg)

Last 3 at AO: 88, 94, 125 (102 avg)

Has anyone been paying attention to this guy?? Great recent form but Yeo is poor against the Crows. They’re one of his worst teams to play so I’ll give him a miss this week. Prediction – 100

Patrick Dangerfield

Last 3: 115, 99, 26 (80 avg)

Last 3 against Gold Coast: 187, 100, 110 (132 avg)

Last 3 at Metricon: 100, 110, 87 (99 avg)

We all know how huge Danger against the Suns can be. It’s a shame it’s not at Kardinia or it could be amazing. Prediction – 130

Mitch Duncan

Last 3: 144, 124, 126 (131 avg)

Last 3 against Gold Coast: 117, 136, 84 (112 avg)

Last 3 at Metricon: 136, 84, 100 (107 avg)

I’m not going to go as far as predict it but I wouldn’t be surprised if Duncan scored 150+ for just the second time in his career this week. His form right now is amazing and the Suns have leaked points in recent weeks, even with a good effort against the Power. Prediction – 135

Max Gawn

Last 3: 144, 109, 127 (127 avg)

Last 3 against GWS: 156, 160, 95 (137 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 127, 145, 126 (133 avg)

Oh boy do I like this matchup. Max loves to play the Giants and has been huge at the MCG in recent weeks. Yes please. Prediction – 140

Josh Kelly

Last 3: 131, 154, 116 (134 avg)

Last 3 against Melbourne: 82, 127, 86 (98 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 154, 82, 108 (115 avg)

Kelly was big again last week (as was expected against the Blues) and would probably be the best mid in SC if he could stay on the park. His history against the Dees is surprisingly poor but I’d still back him after how well the Eagles mids did last week. Prediction – 130

Lachie Whitfield

Last 3: 170, 45, 86 (100 avg)

Last 3 against Melbourne: 61, 68, 73 (67 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 61, 115, 99 (92 avg)

Huge score last week rewarded all of those that held Whitfield. I know I overlooked Kelly’s history against the Dees but Whitfield’s is particularly bad and his MCG history isn’t great either. I can’t back him this week. Prediction – 95

Patrick Cripps

Last 3: 66, 120, 123 (103 avg)

Last 3 against St Kilda: 156, 157, 124 (146 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 123, 110, 157 (130 avg)

Cripps will bounce straight back against a St Kilda team he’s killed the last few times. Prediction – 135

Nat Fyfe

Last 3: 101, 132, 124 (119 avg)

Last 3 against Brisbane: 43, 81, 89 (71 avg)

Last 3 at Perth: 132, 128, 63 (108 avg)

Horrendous history against the Lions. No thanks. Prediction – 90

Lachie Neale

Last 3: 148, 114, 108 (123 avg)

Last 3 against Fremantle: N/A

Last 3 at Perth: 140, 134, 120 (131 avg)

How will Lachie Neale go against his old club? He loves playing at Perth Stadium and is coming off a big 148. I’d strongly consider him. Prediction – 130

LaHug’s POD

Dustin Martin

Last 3: 128, 98, 98 (108 avg)

Last 3 against Essendon: 138, 85, 125 (116 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 128, 89, 66 (94 avg)

You couldn’t… right? Dusty’s scored a fair few tons against the Bombers and last week was as good as we’ve seen him since 2017. You’d have to have huge balls but the potential is there for something big. Potential – 140
